A Dubstep Thing

Current shines a light on the Dub culture that has been steadily transforming & growing from its roots in Jamaica. "Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music that has its roots in London's early 2000s UK garage scene. Musically, dubstep is distinguished by its 2-step rhythm, or use of snare sounds similar to 2step garage and grime, and an emphasis on bass, often producing "dark" sounds, but just as frequently producing sounds reminiscent of dub reggae..."

Below; UK Dubsteppers DMZ meet with US DUBWAR, in a fusion of dub heavy, grime laced, rock & roots infused dance music.

Thanks for this post. Dubstep has really seeped into my blood this year. I think more people will listen to dubstep as the sound keeps evolving and crossing genre borders. I've heard great dubstep sets blended with hip-hop, r&b soul, and of course dancehall reggae and traditional dub sounds.

I agree, it's taking over London as we speak, so hopefully it'll continue to travel worldwide. Thanks for coming thru fam!
